Rachel McAdams is a Canadian actress best known for her roles in The Hot Chick, Wedding Crashers, Red Eye, Mean Girls, The Lucky Ones, Doctor Strange, Game Night, The Time Traveler’s Wife, and Sherlock Holmes. While a lot of actresses have problems picking roles that suit their talent, McAdams clearly doesn’t have that problem. Prior to her Hollywood career, she worked on several TV shows and films in Canada, including Perfect Pie and Slings and Arrows.
Her big move to Hollywood came with a string of insanely successful movies. McAdams was nominated for the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) Award for Best Rising Star. Let’s explore her love life, the romantic relationships she has had after Ryan Gosling.
Why Rachel McAdams Broke Up With Ryan Gosling
Like most Hollywood love tales, the two met in the line of duty. They were both cast members of the romantic drama, The Notebook (2004). Rachel and Ryan dated for almost three years until they parted ways in 2007. Since the two have been relatively hush-hush about their private life, it’s not clear what caused the break-up.
While most Hollywood break-ups happen due to infidelity, it emerged that these two broke up because of their busy schedules. Sounds too simple a reason, right? Well, being actors, they frequently took jobs that required them to be far from each other for months. As such, they were barely spending time together.
Following the success of The Notebook; Gosling and McAdams became more in demand and had too little time with each other. Even though they tried to make their relationship work, a break-up seemed to be the best thing they could do for each other. Since that time, Rachel McAdams has been in other relationships.
Other People The Actress Dated After Ryan Gosling
By October 2009, it was reported that Rachel McAdams has snuggled her way into the arms of Josh Lucas. Months earlier, on Tuesday, January 20, 2009, the two had been spotted at the Purple ball, canoodling the evening away, to celebrate President Obama’s inauguration. According to sources, the lovebirds were nibbling on each other’s necks, exchanging affectionate gazes, and doing a lot of romantic touching.
Within the same year, however, they were said to have split up. Their long absence from the public coupled with an eyewitness account of Lucas alone at a bar, looking all depressed and sipping sorrowfully away at a beer was all the media needed as proof. Around the same time, McAdams was spotted with another mystery man.
In December of that year, Rachel McAdams was spotted in New York City, walking in the snow and she was not alone. Remember the mystery man we talked about? It turns out the lucky guy was Judy Law’s assistant, Ben Jackson, after all.
The duo reportedly met on the set of the movie Sherlock Holmes. We’re not sure how long it lasted. But by the following year, Mcadams had moved on to another relationship.
By October 2010, McAdams and Michael Sheen had become the newest gossip in town. According to sources, McAdams first met the British actor while working together on Woody Allen’s critically-acclaimed film, Midnight In Paris.
Following their surprise split in 2013, fans were eager to get some back story to the whole saga. New interviews from McAdams have revealed that though the couple tried to make up for the distance in their relationship with lots of communication, that wasn’t enough. With Rachel living in Toronto, Canada, and Michael shuttling between his native home, Wales, and Los Angeles, it was difficult to keep tabs on each other; hence the split.
After her split with Michael Sheen, she was spotted kissing Patrick Sambrook on a cold day in Toronto. They, however, split the following year, 2014.
McAdams didn’t take much time to find love again: in 2015, she was spotted with Taylor Kitsch; with whom she starred in True Detective. Although McAdams has refuted the claims over and over, her decision to spend time with Kitsch outside work only fuelled the rumors. In June 2015, the two were spotted dining together at Osteria Mozza in West Hollywood.
Is Jamie Linden Rachel McAdams’ Husband or Boyfriend?
Up until she was spotted with a screenwriter named Jamie Linden in 2016, Rachel McAdams was believed to be in a relationship with Kitsch. Though currently unmarried, the Canadian beauty has been in a flourishing relationship with Jamie.
In February 2018, she announced that she was expecting a child with Linden. As per records, McAdams and Linden have been together since 2016. Today, the couple resides in Toronto, Ontario, Canada with their son; whose name has been kept from the media.
